What is longganisa?

Longganisa originated from the Spanish influence in the Philippines, chorizo or Spanish sausage. Naturally, the taste adapted to the Filipino liking in every region. Like any other local Filipino dish, every region has its own version of longganisa. There is sweet longganisa, garlic, spicy, chorizo de cebu, lucban longganisa, and a lot more. With Nida’s, it even expanded to chicken longganisas. This dish is a staple for breakfast, best served with fried rice and egg, or what is usually called “Longsilog”.
